In Week 8 of this term, boys from Years 1 to 5 will be entertained by the incredible musicians of the Indonesian group, Makukuhan, at a Live Performance Incursion. Details are:

Who:                Makukuhan
Where:             MacKellar Hall
Date:                Tuesday 11 September, 2018

Time:               11:30am (duration 1 hour)

In preparation for this performance, we have been inquiring into four of the group's compositions. We have discovered fascinating traditional instruments and explored how simple patterns can morph into complex variations by modifying musical elements. We have been inspired by the movements of pencak silat, a non-aggressive, spiritual practice of martial arts from South East Asia that incorporates principles of self-awareness, self-defence, self-discipline, responsibility and cooperation.

The learning experiences and concert event surrounding a Musica Viva In Schools ensemble are rich in content and meaning. We would love to see as many parents, grandparents and school community members in attendance as possible as this can be a valuable and exciting way to extend and consolidate the experience.

We hope to see you there!
